Today we are going to practice short passing. (push pass)

Questions:

When would you use a push pass in a game? (short pass)

When you are passing the ball 10 yards to a team-mate, where does your standing foot need to be? (next to ball)

What about your kicking foot - what part of your foot do you use for a push pass? (side)

Why do we use the side of our foot? (largest surface area, so more accurate)

How can your pass help your team-mate receive the pass? (On the floor, with a good weight and accurate to feet or space).

When would we pass into feet and when would we pass into space?

Why would we pass into space?

So to keep the ball travelling along the floor, where should the side of our foot make contact on the ball? Who can show me? (Slightly above centre)

How will you know if you should take a touch to control the ball before passing, or if you should play a first-time pass? Can you give me examples?

Key factors:

Standing foot

Striking foot

Ball contact

Follow through

Weight - easily received

Accuracy - feet or space?

Beyond defenders - all, some, most?

Recognise when to pass?

Team challenge:

We are going to play a little match now, and your challenge is to recognise when it is right to play a pass, then play that pass with quality and into feet or space.

Individual challenge:

Stanley/Luke - as soon as you receive the ball, can you get your head up and make a good decision to either pass, shoot or travel?

Does anyone have any examples of one of your team-mates showing good support play?

Give your own passing today a mark out 10 - What would you have do differently to have got a score one point higher?

Give me a few examples? Ok, so you have now set your own challenge.

For the last 2 minutes I want you to play and try and do what you need to to get one point higher!
